SH1 reopens after truck crash

State Highway one between Glenavy and Morven has reopened after detours were put in place following a truck crash near Old Ferry Rd this morning.

Canterbury police said two occupants of the truck were taken to Timaru Hospital for observation when the truck left the road and rolled just after 6am.

Their injuries were not thought to be serious, and no other vehicles were involved.

Detours have been in place for the past four hours since the accident, and the State Highway closed in both directions while a crane was brought in from Timaru to right the truck.
